Research

Research interests

I am currently working within the Centre for Research in Ageing and Cognitive Health at Exeter (http://psychology.exeter.ac.uk/reach/) with a focus on factors that enable individuals to live well with dementia. My other research interests include attitudes to ageing and stereotyping of older people, and exploring the impact that age stereotyping can have on competencies and well-being in later life.
